The red glass stars were made by a local artist and sold by a church youth group raising money for an overseas mission.
Painted for me by my hairdresser. She recycled and old sock for the hat and a sealing lid from a canning jar for the face.
My son made this for daddy when he was 5 years old. My mother has a pinecone painted silver that her brother made over sixty years ago.
My godson made this for me about 20 years ago. Alex passed away 2 1/2 years ago and this ornament has a very special presence on my tree.
I stitched this during my smocking exploration. It's the only one that I made. I do think it was stitched about the same time my nephew made me the above ornament.
The two folded star ornaments were made at a smocking guild meeting. I made a bunch more at home and gave them to family.
This is my one attempt at Battenberg lace. It was done as a sampler in a class with the smocking guild. I never did any more, but did enjoy learning. at that point I didn't have as much patience for slower projects.
One of my quilting friends stitched this a few years back.
My godson loved sprinkle donuts and when I saw the pattern for crocheted donuts, I knew I would have to make these. I made them for all the family members and still have a dozen or so more in progress. My favourite part was adding the beaded sprinkles. Additional donuts are shown in this earlier post.
